I came across the Bezuidenhout Food Truck Festival by chance in the summer of 2017.
I was doing my grocery shopping when I saw a bright leaflet hanging on the notice board in the grocery store, advertising a food truck festival that would be taking place in early May, right in the area where I live - Bezuidenhout.
Needless to say, I was excited at the thought of attending. As it happens, my sister was visiting that summer, and so we decided to check it out together.
As we had other plans on the day that we decided to pass by the festival, we only stayed long enough to have a snack.
But this year, we decided to dedicate an entire afternoon to it.
Whenever I ask one of my classmates where I can grab a quick but tasty bite to eat in between classes, the answer I usually get is, "You should try Bagels and Beans!"
However, despite its obvious popularity, I was still reluctant to eat at Bagels & Beans Café. For starters, I'm not one to go with the crowd - especially when it comes to food; secondly, I've never really understood bagels or felt the urge to try them out. Nevertheless, it's exactly where I ended up one chilly Saturday afternoon...
It's been just over a month now since I came back to the Netherlands - which means that I got to celebrate my birthday here again this year! 😊
What's more, this year I had something new to celebrate - I decided to move to the Hague! 😃
Last weekend, I finally tasted dumplings for the first time at the Chinese New Year Festival!
It's been a while since I had the opportunity to celebrate Chinese New Year. The last time was in 2008 - in Central London - and I was super excited to be able to relive that experience here in The Hague, Netherlands. 😊
